Brave Elizabeth

Brave Elizabeth

We read about the presidents of the United States, but we don’t often think about what they were like as children. Sheila Ingle looks into the life of Andrew Jackson as a child following the story of his mother, Elizabeth Jackson, as she and her family fight for their land. She experiences loss and heartache, but through it all, she understand the what she is doing is important for her family and her country.

Follow her adventures in Brave Elizabeth! You will be surprised at what you discover about the forgotten stories of another heroine of the American Revolution!
